Reformed Wisdom

On Hebrews 12:9-10

"Whereas, therefore, this holiness consists in the mortification of our lusts and affections in the gradual renovation of our natures, and the sanctification of our souls, the carrying on and increase of these things in us is that which God designs in all his chastisements.  And whereas, next unto our participation of Christ, by the imputation of his righteousness unto us, this is the greatest privilege, glory, honour, and benefit, that in this world we can be made partakers of, we have no reason to be weary of God's chastisements, which are designed to no other end." -- John Owen, Hebrews, vol. 7, 270.
